Yes, I know I just posted pictures of a new brush set I picked up. Yes, I picked up more brushes. Yes, I have have a problem....*lol*...let's get on with it!

These are the Ecotools Bamboo 6 piece brush set. It's made from cruelty free hair, natural & recycled materials, and comes with a reusable storage pouch! I haven't actually used this yet, but I was excited to show you pictures! These are SO soft! I can't imagine not liking them!

This is the blush brush. INCREDIBLY soft! This will be perfect to apply a nice soft wash of color to the cheeks!

This is the eye shading brush. This is a really nice, stiff brush to really pack color on the lids.

This is the concealer brush. Again, this is a nice, stiff brush with just a little bit of give to it.

This is the eye liner brush. You can also use this to fill in the eyebrows as well.

This is for your lashes and brows. I hate when they add these to brush kits. Feels like such a cheap filler. Arg. Oh well.

The brush roll is made from hemp and cotton--very natural. It only has room for the 5 brushes that come with this kit and here's the other reason I don't like the brush roll:

If I were to throw this in a travel bag or my purse, the bristles are exposed so anything could get on them!! Huge negative for me. Though, if you are just putting these in a dry drawer, with no chance of contamination with liquid or powder products, it's fine then. I personally keep my brushes on top of my vanity and rarely use a brush roll. When I do travel, I have a nice little set that is made for travel and keeps the brushes very clean!

Overall, I think these brushes are fantastic! They are pretty light weight because of the bamboo. The handles are fairly long, but not as long as my other brushes. These are SO soft, I really look forward to using them. Pretty good deal! I found these at Walgreens today for $12. I've seen them at Walmart for $14! Check your stores!! What do you think about Ecotools?

I keep meaning to pick up this set but it never happens! :( I already have the eyeshadow brush and I love it for packing colour onto the lid. I also really want to try that blush brush and concealer brush.

@Silhouette, Yeah, I meant to pick this up for a long time. I finally did it! So glad!!! Your glasses are too cute!!


Did you have trouble picking up product with the blush brush? The one I bought didn't pick up anything so I ended up returning it :( I wonder if mine was defected. Still looking for a cheap blush brush.
